The fourth-generation Suzuki Swift was introduced in late-2016 and went on sale in most markets by 2017. Unfortunately, the fourth-generation Swift was never offered in Malaysia, as Suzuki exited the Malaysian market in 2016.

Seen here is the new 2021 Suzuki Swift facelift, which is expected to go on sale in Japan later this year.

Changes are minor – from what we can tell, the restyled Swift gets a new front grille with a horizontal chrome strip and new dual-tone alloy wheels.

Apart from that, the updated Swift also gets the option of a black roof, in addition to two new colours – orange and yellow.

Other than that, changes to the interior and safety equipment remain unknown at this point of time.

Current-generation Suzuki Swift

Powertrain-wise, the new Swift is expected to carry over its current powertrains, including a 1.2-litre mild hybrid (91 PS/118 Nm), a 1.0-litre turbo (102 PS/150 Nm), 1.2-litre petrol (91 PS/118 Nm), and a 1.4-litre (140 PS, 230 Nm).

Earlier, we reported that Suzuki is poised to return to Malaysia under the Naza Group of Companies. Would you get a brand-new Swift if it was offered here?
